In The Collapse of Liberalism, noted political scientist Charles Noble shows how the American political system frustrates progressive reform while taking liberalism to task for not being radical enough-for what he sees as a long history of accommodating the very same political institutions and corporate interests that it has wanted to challenge. As a result, Noble argues, liberals have been unable to solve the problems of class, race and gender inequality that bedevil the United States. In short, American liberalism suffers not only at the hands of conservatives, but also from its own failures of vision, will, and political strategy. Beyond a critique, Noble offers a breath-taking new progressive strategy for rebuilding America.

Clear and thought-provoking, The Collapse of Liberalism is a politically engaged interrogation of the way American liberals think about politics and social reform.

From the Inside Flap:

"Charles Noble has written a passionate, well-argued, and strongly documented volume about the need for progressive reform in America, the obstacles to such reform and how to overcome them. In this beautifully written work, he confronts the failures of Left and shows what it can and must do to help fashion a more just society. In the end, you may not agree with Noble, but you cannot ignore him." - Edward S. Greenberg, University of Colorado, Boulder

"With fearsome erudition and mordant wit, Professor Noble lays out the reasons why the progressive movement in the United States has lost its way so badly in the treacherous labyrinth of the two-party system, thereby betraying its own interests as well as the public's. In an era of open revolt against politics-as-usual and the eruption of new grassroots campaigning techniques inspired by the Internet, his book could not be more timely. It deserves to become a primer for all nascent political movements, in the United States and far beyond." - Andrew Gumbel, The Independent

About the Author:

Charles Noble is chair of the Department of Political Science and director of the International Studies Program at California State University, Long Beach. He is the author of Welfare as We Knew It: A Political History of the American Welfare State and Liberalism at Work: The Rise and Fall of OSHA.
